Czech police have accused a Hungarian lorry driver, who drove five migrants to a firm complex in Prague on Wednesday, of assisting in illegal border crossing, Prague police spokeswoman Eva Kropacova told the website of the national police. The Hungarian national faces up to two years in prison if convicted. Police identified an Iraqi man and four Afghanis among the illegal migrants. "All the detained persons are over the age of 18 and they applied for asylum in Greece in the past. They will be given the decision on being obliged to leave our country," Kropacova said. The five men jumped out of the lorry during the unloading and ran away to the surrounding fields on Wednesday afternoon.
